The Mediterranean Diet – Wild Bay Seafood Company

The Mediterranean Diet

The Mediterranean diet is really more lifestyle than diet. It is a gateway to healthful living that incorporates wholesome foods derived from Mother Nature into your daily diet. When incorporated with physical exercise, it leads to weight loss, enhanced heart and brain health, cancer prevention and diabetes control; reducing your risk of chronic disease.

Fruits, vegetables, whole grains, beans, nuts, legumes, olive oil, herbs, spices, fish, and other seafood make up the bulk of the diet. Poultry, eggs, and dairy are suggested in moderation, and red meat and sweets are saved for special occasions.

Wild Alaskan Sockeye Salmon is the ideal choice to fulfill your recommended serving of seafood. Our Roasted Sockeye With Fennel, Tomatoes and Red Onion is the perfect recipe to get you started. It is a delicious combination of savory salmon paired with a hint of sweetness from the caramelized vegetables. To top it all off, it only requires a single sheet-pan, making for an easy clean up and convenience.
